Justification by faith – Bilingual

罗马书 3:21-26Chinese Contemporary Bible (CCB) 因信称义 21 但如今,上帝的义在律法以外显明出来,有律法和众先知做见证。 22 人只要信耶稣基督,就可以被上帝称为义人,没有一个人例外。 23 因为世人都犯了罪,亏欠上帝的荣耀, 24 但蒙上帝的恩典,靠着基督耶稣的救赎,世人被无条件地称为义人。 25 上帝使基督耶稣成为赎罪祭,以便人借着相信耶稣的宝血可以得到赦免。这是为了显明上帝的义,因为祂用忍耐的心宽容人过去的罪, 26 好在现今显明祂的义,使人知道祂是公义的,祂也称信耶稣的为义人。 Chinese Contemporary Bible (CCB)Chinese Contemporary Bible Copyright © 1979, 2005, 2007, 2011 by Biblica® Used by permission.
